Seems Ubuntu and Gnome related to me:

A default installation of Aptosid (as of 2010-02 ... I don't think that changed) does not even automount an external device. You have to activate automounting as user.

But bad distribution defaults are always a problem. When I learnt Linux with Red Hat 9 I had to activate quite a lot, and I found that a very good approach (in Windows I had to turn off quite a lot of useless and iffy stuff ... like autorun).

But the target group changed with Ubuntu: wash&go it had to be. Which usually means a third party can also wash&go.
